  • Abstract Two experiments were conducted to replicate the reported finding ( A. K. Entus, 1977 , In S. J. Segalowitz and F. Gruber, Eds., Language development and neurological theory, New York: Academic Press) that infants demonstrate a right-ear advantage in the perception of dichotically presented CV syllables. Using the nonnutritive sucking paradigm, infants were presented with verbal stimuli contingent upon criterion level sucking. In both replication attempts, stimuli, response criteria… CONTINUE READING
